This is so good as well. I especially like the action line at the bottom.

For the lips of an immoral woman are as sweet as honey, and her mouth is smoother than oil. But in the end she is as bitter as poison, as dangerous as a double-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave.
Proverbs 5:3-5 NLT

Wednesday 21 April

When you first hear that the Bible is a holy book you might expect that it would steer well clear of subjects such as murder, adultery and abuse. However, in fact the Bible confronts all of these issues on many occasions. Here in Proverbs the writer comments in detail about the temptations of immoral women. He speaks of the way in which they ply their trade and he wants to warn his son of the threat that they pose. They come across as attractive and welcoming. Their words are flattering and enticing. They know how to lure the unsuspecting into their trap. But be warned! The outcome will be a disaster because in fact the path they are offering is as bitter as poison and as dangerous as a double-edged sword. They will lure their victims to death.

The writer of Proverbs wants his readers to know that there is another woman who they can turn to and she is called Wisdom. In chapter 9 we learn that she also offers an invitation to her house. Her house is solidly constructed being built on seven pillars. She offers food and wine to those who are willing to receive it. She offers wisdom and truth and opens the door to life for all who will give up their simple ways and walk in the way of understanding. In the New Testament we hear about someone else making a similar offer of life to all who will follow him. His name is Jesus and all the blessings which are offered by Wisdom are the experience of those who decide to follow him.


How do you handle the temptations that you face day by day?


Lord Jesus Christ, give me strength to stand up to the temptations which could wreck my life. Help me to hear your wise voice and to follow in your footsteps. Amen
